Union Township, Clermont County, Ohio – Representatives from 26 Clermont County business, education, healthcare, government, social service and nonprofit organizations will participate in the LEAD Clermont Classic Class of 2020, which recently kicked off its leadership development
journey with a networking event attended by dozens of the program’s alumni.
Now in its thirty-first year with more than 500 graduates, LEAD Clermont Classic offers a July through May series of leadership classes and personal development activities, along with learning experiences designed to increase understanding of the County’s needs and opportunities.

The 29 members of the 2020 LEAD Clermont class are:
The class is led by Bob Pautke, LEAD Clermont Academy Executive Director. To develop and deploy leadership across a lifetime, the LEAD Clermont continuum now includes LEAD Ready for high school students, LEAD Emerge for 20-39 year-old leaders, LEAD Classic for community leaders, LEAD Encore for third-act career leaders and LEAD Over for alumni continuing education.
